It was an unusual situation at Warsaw Chopin Airport. The famous chapel, Amit Peled, banned to bring a free set of ropes to the airplane. "We're dealing with security issues as a priority," explains the airport's representative.
"In the Warsaw airport for the first time in my life I was taken away from all the cords, claiming that bringing them on board is too dangerous," said in an email to Classic FM Radio Amit Peled.
"I've always had changing ropes with me and I've never been asked to give them back. Well, at least I was not injured by a violincel about the accusation that I could put someone on foot," added the musician.
All according to the rules
Piotr Rudzki from the Public Relations Department of Chopin Airport confirms that this happened. "The operator of the passenger's luggage service has stated that there are violet ropes in it, which, because of their possessions – according to the rules – are described as prohibited articles" – we read by post to the editor.
"The operator of security control, after questioning the possibility of carrying colored ropes on board, repeatedly offered the passenger to put them in a packed package that the passenger did not agree," explains the airport's representative.
"Security is a priority"
"We are very sorry that such a situation has occurred at our airport, but we are dealing with security issues as a priority," concluded Rudzki.
Amit Peled was a guest at the Krzysztof Penderecki Festival. He played the Violin Concert II during the inaugural concert. The festival's program, completely arranged by Elżbieta Penderecka, has performed ten concerts, including seven symphonic and three-class concerts.
